Microcomputer Board, PROM Multi Bus Memory Module Board


In about 1975, Intel Corporation of California introduced a "multibus" architecture for microprocessor circuit boards that that allowed designers join multiple boards within a single computer, increasing computing power and making it possible to interconnect circuit boards from different companies. This is an early Intel multibus board, a programmable read only memory (PROM) memory module board. It is dated 1974, but recorded as a Multi Bus memory board.
